[GUI Plugin] Resize Cover

This plugin allows users to resize the calibre cover image displayed for books in Calibre's book details and cover browser to one of a configurable choice of sizes.

The plugin comes predefined with a 450x680 setting, which some may find useful for changing Overdrive style 510x680 covers from a 3:4 to a more conventional 2:3 aspect ratio. However you can configure any size combinations you prefer in the plugin preferences.

Main Features of v1.0.1:
  • Define one or more width/height menu combinations
  • Specify one to be your default to apply when the toolbar button is clicked
  • Customise with optional keyboard shortcuts

Special Notes:
  • Requires Calibre v0.8.18 or later.

Installation Steps:
  1. Download the attached zip file and install the plugin/add to context menu or toolbar/restart Calibre as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.
